Pride in Excellence and Community:
On Friday, May 15th, the Adelson Campus held our 8th Grade Celebration virtually!  Students and families gathered to honor the accomplishments of the 8th grade students as they transition to high school.  Student Council members Michael Harouni, Ash Abrahamson, and Britohn Blank shared their perspectives on this moment, and how the lessons they’ve learned, and the strength of their education and bonds of friendship will be guides towards a successful future as high school students. Because students could not be together in person, Hebrew and Judaics teachers Mr. Edery, Ms. Fuss, and Ms. Havdala delivered their certificates to the students, and we shared the videos of these special moments.  Kol Hakavod to the 8th Grade students on their successful completion of their middle school years.  May you go from strength to strength in high school!

The high school swim team has a tradition of showing a video every year during their awards ceremony, and this year, a pandemic was not going to impede the Lions from this tradition.Please see the video below.   Watch the HS Swim video
